    Mad artist has just come from Grayston Road through Rosebank and then onto the highway (M1) and then N1 towards Randburg.

    She says it is as clear as a bell.

    Everyone avoiding it - no traffic.

    Probably nothing to fear here.

    I've just confirmed with the Highveld Traffic Desk... ALL TAXIS HAVE GONE AWAY !!!

    I have to contend with Buccleugh and Gillooooooleys now.

    Everybody crashes.
    Some get back on and ride again.
    Some don't.
    Some can't.
